SS Fernebo, built by Oskarshamns Mek. Verks. A/B, Oskarshamn in 1912 and owned at the time of her loss by Ångbåts A/B Ferm (A. Broström & Son), Göteborg, was a Swedish steamer of 1440 tons.

On January 9th, 1917, whilst on a voyage from Gävle to London with a cargo of timber, the ship was mined by German submarine UC-19 near Foulner Bouy, and then beached 3 miles northeast of Cromer.

It now rests on the beach  about a quarter of a mile to the east of the pier, where it can be seen at low tide.
